June Word of the Month-Success

Dear parents and/or guardians...

This month we will discuss success. Success means something different to each individual, but achieving success requires the same skills such as determination, preparedness, hard work and dedication.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

  • Educate your children about goal setting. Help your child develop their own defnition of success. Children get more enjoyment out of activities and learning if they are allowed to measure their own growth and progress.

  • Let your children fail. Letting your children fail can be one of the most critical things to help your children learn. Just as when they were toddlers learning to walk, you let them fall so they could get back up again and keep trying.

  • Concentrate on what your child is good at. Focus on their strengths. Children are not always good at everything they try. If your child shows a better skill set for math and science than poetry and painting, let them excel instead of pointing out how they struggle with artistic endeavors. This can also help them focus on an activity and hopefully become dedicated to it.

  • Lead by example. Show your children your successes in life. How did you achieve these successes and how did you determine what success was for you?

  • Help your children prepare for overcoming their fears and obstacles. It is important for children to be able to move past tough times in order to achieve the level of success they desire.

  • Write down the small goals and accomplishments that will lead up to your child being successful in school, sports and at home.
